Kate Winslet's new HBO series, 'Mare of Easttown', takes place in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

As part of research for her role as Detective Mare Sheehan, she wanted to get to know the area better, and quickly realized just how devoted Wawa those in and around the Delaware Valley are to Wawa, reports Huffington Post.

'To finally walk through the door of a Wawa; I don’t know why I felt like, ‘Oh, yes, I’m here, I belong. This is where it’s at. Wawa.’”
In 'Mare of Easttown', Winslet's Sheehan investigates the murder of teenage girl alongside co-star Evan Peters (of 'American Horror Story' fame).

And, apparently, Peters became a big fan of one of Wawa's most coveted seasonal offerings: The Gobbler. Winslet says, “It’s basically a Thanksgiving meal in a hoagie. He was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I just eat that thing and I pass out.’ And I’d be like, ‘I’m not surprised! I’m not surprised, Evan!’”

Oh, we get it, Kate. Trust us, we get it.
